Skype has just released the latest version of its Internet-phone and video chat application, which are pretty popular among the tablet’s users. The iTunes records -from the users’ review- that the apps get many positive feedbacks.
The Skype software can work on 3G or Wi-Fi connection and can reach up to 16 MBs range. Regarding the new software, a freelance journalist and technology consultant for VentureBeat, Sean Ludwig is impressed by the quality of the video resolution. He writes that the software has a very good video quality – even better than FaceTime.
“In the most important category of video quality, Skype slaughters FaceTime,” Ludwig argues. “Skype allows up to 720p (1280×720) resolution at up to 30 FPS across its various platforms. FaceTime for the iPad and iPhone only allows 320×240 resolution at 10 FPS, while FaceTime for the Mac allows 720p. [A colleague] and I briefly tested FaceTime after using Skype for iPad and noticed a dramatic reduction in video quality.”
